The general science program offers M.S. degrees in the biological sciences, chemistry, the geosciences and physics. The M.S. degree may be described as a breadth degree, rather than a depth degree, so a candidate normally pursues a course of study in one of these disciplines and is cooperating with at least one other discipline.
